Undergraduate Concentration

Jewish studies at Clark is designed to introduce the student to the major historical and religious trends in Jewish civilization since its inception in antiquity. The courses reflect the broad range of developments both encountered and fostered by the Jewish people including their contact with other world civilizations, classical literature, social and religious institutions, as well as their interaction with the modern world. In these courses, Jews and Judaism are studied both in their own internal context and as paradigms for wider trends in history and religion.


For more information, please visit the Jewish Studies Department’s website.

Concentration Requirements

All students must take either HIST 122  - Jewish History in the Ancient and Medieval World, or HIST 121  - Jewish History After 1492. In addition to one of these, students must take six courses, of which at least two must be in the ancient/medieval area and at least two in the modern area. Two courses in Hebrew language may also count toward concentration.
